    I'd like to prefilter the Mails with spamassassin and reject them before they get queued.
    The only thing I'm not shure is the perfomance usage of this method.
    I only read, that you should use this method on low traffic servers only.

    My question is, when is a server a low traffic server?
    Are somewhere examples?
    I don't want to tie down my server.

    Thanks Niko

    How many emails does your server process each day? What are the hardware specs of your server?

    The server is a 2,5Ghz Quad Core, but the ISPconfig server is a Xen guest with 2 Vcpus and 1 Gb Ram at the moment (could be increased)

    At the moment I have 4 Msgs/min avg and up to 70 Msgs/min peaks (Mailgraph stat.)

    I'd say this is a low-traffic mail server (at 4 messages per minute).
